JConverter is a Joomla extension which converts a Wordpress blog to Joomla in just one click.

JConverter Wordpress to Joomla Converter

What is JConverter JConverter is a Joomla component which allows users to import and convert their existing Wordpress blog into a new Joomla website. In short, it converts your Wordpress blog to Joomla in one click once configured.

How it works? For converting a Wordpress blog to Joomla, you need to provide Wordpress database access details to JConverter. Using database credentials, JConverter does the following. ● Connects to Wordpress database ● Imports selected options ● Converts imported data to Joomla format ● Stores converted data in Joomla database

What all it can import? JConverter supports importing following data from Wordpress. ● Native Wordpress Posts ● Native Wordpress Pages ● Categories ● Users ● Comments (using JComments) ● Links Note: It does not support importing data for any plugins.

Does it import files, e.g. images? Currently it does not support importing images from Wordpress however images would still be shown in Joomla website after import since it retains links to images from your Wordpress installation. If the path to images isn’t changed then images would keep showing always.

How long does it take for import? We tested it on a Wordpress blog having over 1000 posts, over a dozen categories and a few hundred users. Import completed in less than a minute. For smaller sites, import will finish within 5-10 seconds after clicking on ‘Start Conversion’ button.

Prerequisites Though not necessary but we strongly recommend the following prerequisites for properly importing Wordpress blog to Joomla using JConverter. ● Both Joomla and Wordpress installation (database) should be on same server. ● For import purpose, you should use a blank Joomla installation without any data, though this is not mandatory.
